Citizen Building During the Spanish Transition to Democracy: Between the Spanish Debate and the Social Movements Debate

Tamar Groves, Nigel Townson, Inbal Ofer, Antonio Herrera

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

The concluding chapter strives to show how the four case studies represent different dimensions of the same phenomenon. Using contemporary new social movements’ theories, it attempts to demonstrate how the Spanish case was both a national and international phenomenon that illustrates how the cycle of mobilization that swept across the west, from the 1960s, introduced changes into the meaning and practices of citizenship. It also ties these changes to current social mobilization, which seems to reemploy them not only in Spain, but in other parts of the world that share the political aspirations of the Spanish “15 m” movement.
